The Cad Factory Vision The Cad Factory is an artist led organisation creating an international program of new, immersive and experimental work guided by authentic exchange, ethical principles, people and place.
The Cad Factory set the bar in socially engaged practice, blurring the boundaries between the challenging world of contemporary art and diverse public participation. Clive Parkinson - Director, Arts for Health, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK
The impact of the Cad Factory in Narrandera Shire in particular has been profound. Their programs and projects are reaching a broad audience, developing new audiences, and providing opportunities for local and regional artists to participate in a range of art genres.

President’s Report Renay Ringma It was going to be a ‘fallow’ year – one where the Board, Vic and Sarah could spend more time planning, renewing and re-building. 2016, however, had something very different in mind, becoming the year where we reached an audience that was greater than those reached across the cumulative years, travelled greater distances and spent considerable time overseas and in our capital cities. Yet more than anything, last year highlighted the constant thrum of the Cad Factory’s regional sensibility and commitment that underscores everything the organisation does. I hope that in reading this Annual Report, you will see the deep importance of Australia’s land, heritage and communities from Boree Creek to Canberra, Wagga Wagga to Dubbo, Hay to Melbourne. Deliberately, at the start of the year, we chose a new strategy, “support the arts’ role in identifying and responding to regional vulnerabilities and resilience”. This came from a discussion on the breadth of change impacting Australia and strategies for engagement and action, through the arts. It continues to be an important concern and underpins much of our 2016 and 2017 activity. While the intersection of the arts and wellbeing has been a significant area of exploration for many years for the Cad Factory, Vic’s work with patients and staff at the Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in the United Kingdom, has added breadth, depth and gravitas to his practice. The sharing of these outcomes and collected knowledge (and wisdom), through talks and publications, has resulted in Vic, the organisation and international arts, charting new boundaries.
Looking back when I was writing my 2015 President’s Report, I expressed dismay at the arts funding controversy that impacted, and continues to impact, so many of our colleagues, friends, arts practitioners and organisations around the country. Yet, we remain humbly thankful for the ongoing support of Arts NSW and Regional Arts NSW together with new support from Catalyst – which meant that overall we saw the same level of funding in 2016 as the previous year. A very warm ‘thanks’ must be said to my Board, which saw the completion of a hugely significant contribution of artist and educator, Jacqui Ryding, and the appointment of two talented and committed women, Sabiene Heindl and Jane Kries. Sabiene and Jane have already made an enormous contribution to the Cad Factory and, together with our remaining founding Board Members, Linda Luke and Lindy Allen, continue to provide the organisation and I, with swathes of time, expertise, commitment and laughter. 2016 also saw us confirm a new role as part of the Cad Factory, General Manager. An important step in the organisation’s maturity – from January 2017 Claire Harris brings her considerable arts and management background, helping us grow more sustainable funding pathways. After a number of years on the journey with Vic and Sarah, I never tire of their ambitious plans. Yet 2017 without doubt, is likely to take us to new places, help us learn more about who we are and reach out to national and international communities in ever evolving ways – including USA, Lithuania, and the United Kingdom. See our 2017 Program HERE Recently speaking with Sarah on her return from her residency at Duke University in North Carolina USA, I realised just how big and yet how small and interconnected the Cad Factory has become. Here’s to another year – bring it on! www.cadfactory.com.au
Artistic Directorâ€™s Report Vic McEwan 2016 was a massive year for us, artistically, personally, organisationally. With the continued support of our amazing board, we embedded deep foundations and strategic planning to make the Cad Factory a strong and viable organisation into the future. As Renay mentions, we have welcomed two new board members and said goodbye to one. Change and growth were the outcomes for 2016. Weathering the abrupt and unexpected changes to the arts funding landscape, we drew on our reputation and deep ethical process in order to strengthen our already established partnerships, create new ones and to work with our local communities. We made work that we are immensely proud of in 2016, delivered with our favourite combination of hard and never ending work, deep and meaningful engagement and lots of fun. Attending the 2016 Artlands conference in Dubbo we shared our work by collaborating to create the opening ceremony, sitting on the keynote arts and health panel, and delivering three other artistic outcomes. This gave us the opportunity to share our work and discuss it in depth with a wide range of people from around Australia.
Artlands was a major turning point for the Cad Factory, not just as a result of the work that we shared but because of the conversations we participated in. We explored new ideas, new collaborations, new relationships and a new way of thinking about our place within the Australian artistic landscape emboldened by the knowledge that from our regional centre we can contribute to our national voice. Delivering a project as part of Sydney Design Festival was another real achievement, not just because it drew an audience of over 20,000 people to see our work, not just because it allowed us to try new artistic ideas which will be developed further in 2017, not just because it allowed a large group of local artists to travel to Sydney to share their work but because it was the first time there had been such a major presence of regionally based artists presented as part of the festival. This is important because it acknowledges that design developments arenâ€™t just happening in our capital cities. Our regional centres, farmers and communities are creating user led design innovations constantly in order to provide the very food and fibre that the people in our cities rely on. Another main development in 2016 that we are reflecting on now, is our greater understanding of our ability to share our local stories to a national and international audience. We are continuing to experience change and growth and most importantly, a clearer focus and vision with a deeper commitment and understanding of what we are trying to achieve and a new confidence in working in collaboration to share the potential of artistic practice as being a key contributor to the development of a just and fair humanity. www.cadfactory.com.au

Key Strategies 1.Deliver excellence in contemporary arts practice
We are committed to providing and broadening Australian contemporary visual, performance and installation arts practice that represents global excellence Haunting for Land Dialogues Haunting was the major artistic outcome of Vic’s residency at the National Museum of Australia in 2015. It featured photographs of objects from the National Museum of Australia’s collection, and from other collections, that recorded the profound social and ecological changes that came with agricultural development in southern Australia. In 2016, this artwork was remade for the location on Wagga Beach, opposite the traditional Wiradjuri Emu Sancturary on the banks of the Murrumbidgee River, to coincide with Charles Sturt University’s conference, Land Dialogues. The Harmonic Oscillator Continuing from Vic’s Arts NSW Regional Fellowship, and with support from Catalyst, Vic continues to work with Clive Parkinson from Manchester Metropolitan University for the project, The Harmonic Oscillator. 2016 involved deep creative work that will lead to multiple outcomes in 2017 in both the UK and Australia.

Specimen for ARTLANDS Dubbo Specimen is a large outdoor installation made in collaboration with a living landscape. Featuring objects from the National Museum of Australiaâ€™s Specimen Collection, this project aims to explore the possibility to connect emotionally to these specimens that have been removed from their landscape. By witnessing these objects projected back into the landscape, it hopefully allows a space to consider the shadows and consequences that exist as a result of our collective human decision making. The Opening Ceremony for ARTLANDS Dubbo Artlands Dubbo is Regional Arts Australiaâ€™s biennial conference to celebrate Australian Regional Arts. The opening show was made in collaboration with Vic McEwan, Dave Jones and Joey Ruigrok to highlight contemporary arts being made in regional settings. Shadow Places Shadow Places was presented at the Powerhouse Museum, as part of Sydney Design Festival. Shadow Places combines ecological and agricultural thinking, projection, sound and textiles and is focused on the interconnectedness of rural and urban places and people. It proposes that rural landscapes are forgotten places, despite people being intimately tied to them through food and fibre production, through ecology and materiality.

2. Build meaningful and vocal partnerships; nurture and develop arts capacity for communities, people and place We will actively connect with the arts and other sectors, service providers, community groups and national and local business to build relationships, tell stories and celebrate remote landscapes and the people that live within them. The Friendship Circle During 2016 we partnered with Riverina Community College and Narrandera Arts and Creative Network to research, devise and deliver the exhibition, Our Infinite Imprint. The project was one of eight Accessible Arts Artist Run Initiatives around the State that provided opportunities for people with disability to connect to their creative communities to actively collaborate on creating new artworks. Local Partnerships During 2016 we continued our partnership with Charles Sturt University, Wagga Wagga Campus to deliver exhibitions over 2015 - 17 that support the artistic practice of Riverina female artists. We continued our partnership with Narrandera Arts and Creative Network to work on the Friendship Circle in a mentorship capacity. We establsihed a new partnership in working with Riverina Community College to deliver the same project.
Presentations Throughout 2016 Artistic Director Vic McEwan was invited to speak on numerous occasions including: • Land Dialogues Conference, Wagga Wagga • Artist Talk at Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester UK • Performing Climates, Melbourne • Public Lecture at MAAS, Sydney • Lecture to Medical Humanities Students, Sydney University • Regional Gallery Associations of South Australia Annual Forum • The Art of Good Health and Wellbeing, Sydney Creative Producer Sarah McEwan was invited as a panel member of Practice Vol.1 at Eastern Riverina Arts, Wagga Wagga Both Vic and Sarah McEwan judged the 2016 Narrandera Rotary Art Competition.

3. Provide interactive opportunities for artists, audiences and communities We will help grow and sustain local artists and audiences by providing connections and their voices for regional communities to celebrate their natural and built landscapes. Nicole Barakat Workshops for Shadow Places Nicole Barakat is a professional artist who has made work nationally and internationally. This is the second year Nicole has worked with us, having run sucessful workshops for On Common Ground. This project allowed for the Cad Factory and Nicole to contiune our deep interest in collaborating with communities. For the project Shadow Places, Nicole worked with local textile artists to create a stunning triptych of large works to integrate with sound and video at the Powerhouse Museum. Friendship Circle Workshops for Our Infinite Imprint Once a month, over nine months we provided workshops for local Narradera residents with and without disability to collaborate and make new work. This on-going process created a rich and deep expereience for participants and the resulting exhibition challenged notions of contemporary textiles work. Mentoring Emerging Artist Jordy Bos Jordy Bos is a young artist based in Coolamon, NSW. As a recipiet of the Arts NSW Young Regional Scholarship, Sarah mentored Jordy over ten months to help realise her first solo exhibition Into the Fold.
Recording Emerging Musician Matt Ortiz Matt Ortiz is a young regional musician based in Albury, NSW. As a recipiet of the Arts NSW Young Regional Scholarship, Vic recorded Matt’s first solo EP of seven songs. Workshops at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital During Vic’s 2016 trips to the UK to develop work for the Harmonic Oscillator, he conducted multiple workshops with patients, staff and families. Working with patients in group settings or one on one, these workshops aimed to explore the lived experience of the patient by using contemporary arts practice to offer new opportunities for giving voice to those undergoing treatment. Realising that families and staff are just as exposed to trauma as patients, the workshops also focused on working with staff in exploring the emotional navigation of their daily environment. Our Infinite Imprint and A Life in Craft School Visits During the exhibition Our Infinite Imprint and A Life in Craft, 124 primary school students attended the exhibition where they engaged with a number of the artists and discussed ideas, materials and themes presented in the exhibition. St Joseph’s Workshop By invitation of St Joseph’s Primary School Narrandera, we were asked to share with students ideas about contemporary art and working as an artist. The focus of these types of workshops is on both making future artists and arts audiences. ARTLANDS Opening Ceremony To make the opening ceremony for Artlands, we worked with several community groups ranging from local school students, teachers, musicians, the town orchestra and marching band, local artists, and craftspeople all offering their skill to create this professional work to a large audience. www.cadfactory.com.au
Under the Kurrajong Tree: Kristin Hersh As part of our series of occasional gigs at the Cad Factory, we invited American musician, Kristin Hersh to come to Boree Creek to perform. Kristin was on an international tour and she agreed to come and play and to share her practice over three nights; with a gig in Boree Creek and a Question + Answer event held in Wagga and Griffith supported by Eastern and Western Riverina Arts. This was a fabulous opportunity for people to watch an international performer and author perform in a local and intimate setting. RE//CONSTRUCTING Arts Lab These two weekend arts labs were designed to build the capacity of Riverina female artists by sharing skills, knowledge and interests with their peers in a supportive environment. A Life In Craft: A Celebration of Joyce Spencer To complement the exhibition Our Infinite Imprint, we held a retrospective exhibition featuring some of the work of local Narrandera artist Joyce Spencer. At 87 years of age, Joyce still has a tremendous capacity for making. Joyce has been an artist on a number of Cad Factory projects over the years and this exhibition was to honour her immense body of work. Rural Residency Collaborations We invited four artists, including two local artists, to collaborate to share skills over a three week period. The artists included were Julie Briggs (Narrandera) collaborating with Barbara Bartos (Italy) and Trent Light (Narrandera) collaborating with Darrin Baker (Sydney). The work made during their residency will be developed into finished artworks to be exhibited at Wagga Wagga Art Gallery. Barbara and Julie conducted a sharing night for local people to attend to see the work created and hear about their practices. Boree Creek Primary School Workshops As part of the Rural Residency Collaborations, each pair of artists gave a workshop to the students of Boree Creek, a small school with 25 students. These included a music box making workshop and a video workshop.

4. Support the arts role in identifying and responding to regional vulnerabilities and resilience Using art-based activity and projects, we will help create resilient communities and individuals in response to significant change impacting Australia including climate change, economic instability, marginalisation, feminism and mental health. RE//CONSTRUCTING Exhibition For International Womenâ€™s Day, the Cad Factory and Charles Sturt University partnered to present the work of 21 intergenerational female artists from across the Riverina, curated by Sarah McEwan and Julie Montgarrett. This exhibition included four Arts Labs to develop work and exchange ideas with peers. Special guest Jacqueline Millner from Sydney University and the Contemporary Art and Feminism Network was invited to lauch the exhibition, give a lecture, and lead a group critique session. Read the catalogue Performance Climates Vic and George Main were invited to speak at Performance Climates, a conference in Melbourne exploring the arts and climate change. They discussed their work Haunting, that addresses the dramatic envirnmental changes since settlement, and the impending climate devastation as written by leading experts in climate research. Vic exhibited images that were taken during his 2015 Artist in Residence at the National Museum of Australia.
